I have a question, i dont quite get when the festival starts, is it just the fri-sat-sun? or are there things before/after. We're looking for book flights sometime soon, do i need to fly out on the wednesday? or is the Thursday OK? Need to know how much leave to book!

Thanks.
First things first, unlike festivals over here the main festival days are Thurs-Sat. On Wednesday and Sunday there are extra days (for people who have a wristband for the main festival days) in a smaller venue somewhere else in the city where there are other bands playing - notably Mercury Rev doing Deserter's Songs on the Sunday.
Ah, thanks Andy, i get that now, i hadnt clicked that the actual festival dates were thu-fri-sat, makes sense now.

Agreed, the line-ups ace isn't it, i'm well excited at the prospect of seeing Half Japanese.
and that snare drum, that drum roll
means we've got a winner

I think I'm going to Primavera next year. I'm not really that fussed about the line-up to be honest, more interested in going to a festival in Barcelona.

Edit
OHMIGOD! Am I one of those people who talks about goign to Glasto for the atmosphere? I fucking SUCK.
I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.

Anyone got any tips on how the hell to get to Barcelona?

I don't want to fly if I can avoid it. A couple of years ago I went to Madrid by coach, but Eurolines keeps telling me that there's no option to go to Barcelona (or Madrid) by coach, even though they're options when you select a destination.

I can't find Eurostar tickets for less than 10 billion pounds.

Helps?

The Spanish airport strikes are apparently on 20, 21, 24, 25 and 30 April; 2, 14, 15, 19 and 20 May; 13, 23 and 30 June; 1, 2, 3, 4, 15 and 31 July; and 1, 15 and 31 August - so shouldn't affect Primavera if you're only going for the long weekend (but maybe people travelling in the weeks either side of that weekend might have got scared into buying train tickets and snapped up all the cheap ones?).

Actually, Ray, I think I got my train tickets around this time one year and ended up paying through the nose. The only thing I can suggest is to try the Rail Europe website first (for your Paris-Barcelona tickets), and then the Eurostar site for your separate London-Paris tickets. Getting a quote for the whole thing from Rail Europe always ended up more expensive, when I tried it.

But you probably know all this already.

Um, how about hitching?

I signe dup for some carshare sights. Problem is I am way to anal and scared to leave it to chance when I know I gotta be somewhere some time (I mena, if I didn't need to be there to see bands and back for work I would be up for hitching).

ANYWAY. Eurolines tix are on sale, I am BOOKED :-D

Still a bit confused over where Comet Gain are playing - Poblenou is not far from the festival site - but not found a Parc on the map yet.
Annoying that Darren Hayman is playing the night before i get there.

-------
The next edition of San Miguel Primavera Sound will start in a few weeks and the list of confirmed artists for the Parc del Fòrum is now complete and the names and details are as follows.

Bradford Cox’s band Deerhunter will be one of the attractions of the festival after their recent successful tour of our country, with the acclaimed "Halcyon Digest". The hypnotic rock of Moon Duo, which is on the lips of everyone because of the release of "Mazes", the tribal psychedelia of Prince Rama and the home grown artists Marina Gallardo, Za! and La Débil completes the list of the performances that will take place on the main stages of the Parc del Fòrum.

There are also already details about the programme of some of the activities that will take place during the week prior and parallel to the main event, like Primavera al Parc which will be on the 27th, 28th and 29th May. Sonny & The Sunsets, Comet Gain, The Fresh & Onlys, Tennis, Cloud Nothings, Autolux, Espaldamaceta & Caballo, Ducktails, Dan Melchior und Das Menace, Las Robertas, Espanto, Inspira and Dotore are some of the bands that will play on the two stages of the Parc Central del Poblenou.

Likewise and as usual, the cycle Primavera als Clubs will flood some of the cities venues with music on the 23rd and 24th May. On Monday 23rd in La [2] de Apolo the label BCore will present Betunizer, Capsula and Bullit and upstairs in the Apolo Acuarela will bring us Darren Hayman & The Secondary Modern, The Bitter Springs and Nacho Umbert & La Compañía. On Tuesday 24th the second room of the Apolo will put on a showcase from Germany of Discorporate/ Hack with the appearance of Dead Western, Capillary Action, Schnaak and special guests. There will soon be news about the rest of the activities in this cycle.

I saw Rachel from Comet Gain earlier this week and she said that they're playing wednesday on the beach (yep, I did ask if they were playing 'Fists in the pockets') and somewhere else on the saturday night too, yeah I should find out more details and post them here.

Where and when is Dazzer playing? We're arriving on the monday so hopefully can see him!

Looks like Darren is playing Apolo club on Monday night - which looks quite central between Ramblas and Montjuic

Aah found the Parc now with that clue - it is by the beach about halfway between city centre and festival site.

Hopefully the Sat night is part of the festival - otherwise will miss other things

This site, designed by the renowned architect Jean Nouvel, will be the venue for the free concerts programmed during the San Miguel Primavera Sound on the 27th, 28th and 29th May. And as well as the previously announced artists Papas Fritas, Seward, GAF, Maryland, The Birkins, Zurych, Igloo and Eladio y Los Seres Queridos will also perform.

The definitive programme per days is as follows:

Friday 27th May
The Fresh & Onlys, Ducktails, Sonny & The Sunsets, Las Robertas, Dotore, Maryland, Eladio y Los Seres Queridos / minimúsica als Coles: Anímic, Internet2, Manos de Topo

Saturday 28th May

S-weeet! I'm arriving just before midday Monday and we're staying in that sort of area. Go team!

EDIT

I have never ever used the word 'sweet' in that context before. I apologise :-/

PS
I;ve posted this elsehere, but does anyone happen to know how accurate the indiepop tavel guide is for Barcelona? I think it's kinda old.

Timetable is now up on the official site - apparently it was delayed as none of the bands wanted to play at the same time as the Champions League final.

Its a bit clearer who plays where and when.

Basically Wed and Sunday bands play at Poble Espanyol which is on Montjuic near the Olympic site
On Friday and Saturday bands are on the beach near the festival site during the day
Then Tursday, Friday, Saturday bands at main site at night - some looong days
